Searched all over the Schwab site for this, couldn't find. Simple, once you know where to go. Many thanks.

I tried to find this information at Schwab and couldn't (too many irrelevant results) so I came here and had it fixed in a minute. Much appreciated.

Found it! Go to Accounts, Positions, and then at the top of the chart of your securities click on the blue "Settings gear" and enable the Reinvest? box and Save. Then there will be a column on the right side of your securities where you can choose to reinvest or not. Took me a while to find it.

For folks who cannot see the Reinvest? column in the table, it can be enabled using the Settings option right above the table.

Thanks! I went to the Schwab search for help on this question and I didn't get anything useful. Simple explanation without a video!

I wish Schwab would provide a way to stop automatic dividend reinvestment for all positions instead putting the user through the trouble of having to change it individually.

Thank you, this was so simple but I had no idea you could click on the "No"
